Free Bystander Training offered by Impact
Spring Training is here! Join us for a 2-hour workshop with IMPACT BOSTON and trainer Adriana Li on Facing AAPI Race-Based Harassment & Self-Defense Training. This training is being offered free with the generous support of CAATA to our AAPI* Theater Community and your families.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many Asian American Pacific Islander communities have faced increased race-based harassment. This class introduces strategies that can be helpful in the face of race-based harassment, with opportunities to practice in role-plays against a mock assailant. This class covers:
- Adrenaline management skills to regulate our own emotions
- De-escalation strategies to use with the assailant
- Verbal boundary setting techniques
- Best practices for bystander intervention when witnessing harassment or other unsafe situations
This class is for AAPI identified and presenting individuals, and intended for folks 16 years and up. ASL interpretation will be provided.
